The Big 5 Saudi opens

Post Time:Mar 08,2016Classify:Industry NewsView:368

The Big 5 Saudi takes place over four days from March 7 to 10, showcasing some of the world’s best products from the construction sector.  

This year’s exhibition, to be hosted at the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events, will feature more learning opportunities than ever before. The Big 5 Saudi is the largest construction exhibition in Jeddah and will give thousands of visitors access to diverse certified workshops and seminars, all free of charge.


In Saudi Arabia, where the construction market remains strong despite the slump in oil prices, analyst Ventures Onsite believes the country is pushing through with its investment plans in the sector.

Andrew Jones, partner and head of construction — Middle East at law firm Dentons and speaker at The Big 5 Saudi said: “For a number of years now diversifying the economy has been the key driver in Saudi Arabia. Major infrastructure projects, such as the planned metro works and health facilities investment, would help achieve a certain amount of economic diversification. In addition, foreign investment into Saudi Arabia is expected to increase due to the Kingdom providing direct access to its $570bn stock exchange to foreign investors.”

According to Ventures Onsite some $19.7bn worth of projects are under way in and around Jeddah, helping to create a competitive contracting environment in one of Saudi Arabia’s busiest cities. Securing work here has meant staying on top of the latest advances in construction technology.

That will be the aim for the thousands of building, engineering and design professionals that will head to the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events as the largest international focused construction exhibition in the country gets under way.

The four-day Big 5 Saudi will give visitors the chance to learn about and source the latest international and local construction products and technologies.
